SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - A storm system bringing rain to the southern Plains on Monday will invade South Mississippi on Tuesday.

People in southeast Texas woke up Monday to downpours piling up two to four inches of rainfall on the ground. That system is expected to slowly roll eastward, arriving along the Mississippi Gulf Coast by early Tuesday.

"The latest forecast models show rain showers will begin moving into the WLOX-TV area after midnight Tuesday morning," said WLOX First Alert Meteorologist Wesley Williams. "Heavy rain will be possible as those showers continue pushing slowly eastward across our region."

Tuesday's forecast calls for the highest rain chance mainly between 6 A.M. and 8 A.M.

"Pouring rain could make for a dangerous Tuesday morning commute," Williams said.

Rain chances decrease somewhat by Tuesday evening. And the rainfall amounts by the end of the day should range mainly between one to two inches.

Once the system passes through, quieter weather settles into the Gulf Coast region for Wednesday.
